Video Microscopes

Learn about an the invisible, but vital world, essential to life on Earth

You’ll come away with an entirely new perspective on the ecosystem when our naturalists use our powerful video microscopes to show you what lives in a drop of water. Capable of 80x magnification, and attached to large-screen monitors in the ship’s lounge for collective viewing, our microscopes give you a unique view of all-important krill in Antarctica, or the differences between organic versus inorganic sand in the Galápagos. They provide you with a broader understanding of the area you are traveling in, and possibly, a grander sense of life’s complexity as well.
